Are you tired of the same old sports and looking for something out of the ordinary?
Then you're in luck because that's what Bettingsoftware.com is going to talk about today!

Check out the 10 sports too bizarre to be real below:

10. Cheese race

Each year, a Double Gloucester cheese weighing between seven and nine pounds (about four kilograms) is dropped on Cooper's Hill near Gloucester, England, and competitors begin chasing it. However, the cheese can reach speeds of up to 70 miles per hour, and the chances of catching it are very slim. So the person who crosses the finish line first wins the cheese. If you decide to participate in this competition, you must be very careful because the uneven surface of Cooper's Hill can cause serious injuries.

9. Chess boxing

Initially, people believed that boxing-chess, invented by the Dutch artist Iepe Rubingh, was an artistic spectacle and not a sport. Today, the game consists of 11 rounds, 6 of chess and 5 of boxing. The competitor can win by knockout in the ring or checkmate on the board. In fact, it is a good opportunity to test the physical and mental abilities of the competitors.

8. Worm charmers

Worm Chasing is a sport in which the competitors are distributed over plots of approximately 3 m², where they try to extract as many worms as possible from the ground in just 30 minutes. The one who gets the most worms wins! The world record belongs to Sophie Smith, age 10, who at the 2009 Wormworld World Championships managed to remove 567 worms.

7. Wife carrying

The sport of wife-carrying was born in the small town of Sonkajarvi in Finland. Competitors race by carrying their wives on their backs over an obstacle course. The story of the birth of this game has its origins in the legend of Ronkainen the thief. According to one version, he and the members of his gang stole food and women from neighboring villages and carried them on their shoulders during the escape. The World Wife-carrying Championship is held annually in Finland, and the winner receives the equivalent of his companion's weight in beer.

6. Bog snorkeling

Swamp diving is probably one of the strangest sports on our planet. Every August, hundreds of swimmers from around the world gather in the small town of Llanwrtyd Wells in Wales, UK, to compete in the World Swamp Diving Championships. Competitors are required to wear a diving snorkel and fins, and complete two sections of a 55-meter trench without using traditional swimming styles.

5. Bamboo poles water race

Individual bamboo pole races are a traditional sport in Guizhou province in southwestern China. Competitors stand on a bamboo pole about 7 meters long and use a thinner pole as a paddle. Initially, bamboo pole racing was not a sport, but a means of transportation in China. Today, bamboo is often replaced by green fiberglass plates that are similar in appearance, but much more durable and stable.

4. Extreme ironing

Extreme Ironing is the latest trend in "dangerous sports that combine the thrill of extreme outdoor activities with the satisfaction of a well-done shirt. Competitors call themselves "Iromannes" and go to dangerous or remote places with an ironing board. Today there have been several forays into this sport, including different activities such as going under water, on top of a mountain, in moving vehicles, in a canoe, in the middle of a busy street, or skiing, skydiving or snowboarding.

3. Toe wrestling

This unusual sport involves 2 competitors who must try to dominate their opponent's fingers and pin them for at least three seconds to win the round. Rounds are played first with the right foot and then with the left foot. This strange sport dates back to 1976, when a group of people from Staffordshire were looking for a sport in which the British could win.

2. Log rolling

Two competitors try to stand on a floating log, causing the opponent to lose balance and fall into the water. Participants can use a variety of techniques to knock their opponent out, such as kicking the log, changing direction, etc. However, they cannot touch or cross the center line. This sport requires leg strength and a high level of balance and concentration.

1. Sheep counting

Sheep counting competitions have become very popular in Australia in recent years. Unlike the mental exercise of counting sheep to sleep, this sport requires a great deal of attention. Approximately 400 sheep are let out of a pen and passed through 10 competitors who try to count them as accurately as possible. The person who tells the exact number of sheep is the winner of the competition.

Whoa, that was a weird ride wasn't it? But a fun one for sure.
